Hi Professor Roma and class one event I would like to discuss which started in the 21st century is the ability to further your education online. I can contest I would have never been able to obtain my BSN in person at night after working a full shift.  During the 21st century online education came in 2 areas either continuing education or a degree program (Chamberlain University, 2022).  I do remember taking classes back in 1998 at night after working, luckily only part time, and I remember how difficult it was to focus after working a shift as an ER tech.  In 1998 there was not so much focus on getting your BSN, today it is almost prevalent. ..…please click the purchase button to access the entire solution at $5
